Ideas Mating

Ideas Mating

It is Saturday and many weddings shall take place. However; there are many intangible wedding celebrations of ideas mating. How ideas are celebrating their long-awaited mating? Nature provides some clues.

There is only one queen idea and several drones (male ideas). The queen idea flies to a site where thousands of male ideas are waiting. Only the selective few ideas get the chance to mate with the queen idea and one at a time. Once a drone idea has mated it soon dies, but another drone idea shall mate the queen and the process repeats between seven to ten times. This way the queen idea will have million of sperm ideas stored in her body. The queen idea shall use a selected daily dosage to fertile the eggs and produce new bees-like ideas.
The bee-metaphor tells us that we may have one queen idea and from which this idea may fly over to a selected hive (location) to mate with few ideas to still generate the seeds of many more ideas that may inoculate resting ideas to fruition. Great ideas don't come easy and we may need huge number of them to generate few valuable ones.

Ideas may mate using a different approach. They may first stretch their arms in different directions. This is to find a solid idea to mate with. After mating, the queen idea devours the male idea. The male idea dies. Its purpose in life has ended. To save their lives, some male ideas grow their arms very long and they throw their ideas at the male from distance so as not to get killed. Or, some ideas not only have long arms to mate from distance, but also mate when the female idea is foraging. Being busy and not focused on mating, the male idea may mate safely.

Ideas Mating


The sexual and dating networks have octopus-like arms. Do ideas need such a mating structure with those ideas of long arms getting advantage to mate with female ideas? Will male ideas die or shall they survive the mating? It seems that male ideas are ready to lose their original identity so that new ideas may emerge. Is the octopus a better metaphor than a spider web when it comes to ideas mating?

Mentioning the spider web, spiders mate in a different way. The sexual organs of the male and female don't meet directly. Again, male ideas may get killed post to mating. Watch the video below.Β 



Saturday night fever- whose ideas are mating? May be ideas don't marry on Saturdays. More likely they marry on Tuesdays and Wednesdays when people are mostly engaged on the internet.


I dedicate this post toΒ Javier CΓ‘mara RicaΒ and the beBee Team

Franci Eugenia Hoffman- when idea have been extended into arms and have their "length" (when) they and grow into an "Ideas Octopus" then they may capture the prey "desired idea and devour it. Yes, new ideas shall then emerge. Using the word emerge means we have a complex process and new ideas may emerge suddenly. Brilliant comment and I do feel with it we passed "The Saturday Night Fever"

Ideas mating - an interesting reference to ideas that have been around and survived the test of time. But these ideas will constantly be challenged by new ideas. So, whose ideas are mating; and when, why and how? It will behoove us to know in order to enjoy lasting relationships. beBees success will depend on learning from ideas that have withstood the test of time but being open to new ideas as they emerge. Success will come by mastering the blend of old and new. Their open arms attitude and willingness to please have developed past the Saturday night - date night. Now it's time to see if they make it to the altar. I have no doubt that they will.

I find the discussions there beside the great comment made on my sharing of same post by @Deborah Lange are very illuminating indeed. The only way I may think of is copy from there and paste here as a reply dear Anees Zaidi. Truly, enriching comments there and this is one drawback of sharing- scattering of comments

Sara Jacobovici- I forget to mention while busy adding the balm to the wound what you have written "this Buzz, as all your others, has much to offer. What you are describing in nature is a process that has been around a long time and has survived the test of time". Known process yes, but that octopus arms have local brains only very recently and I leave it to your imagination to find out who researched this fact.

You are a mind-reader Sara Jacobovici and your comment is like the honey balm on the wound. I am sure you know what I mean.

Ali Anani, this Buzz, as all your others, has much to offer. What you are describing in nature is a process that has been around a long time and has survived the test of time. The process on beBee for results is still so much at the beginning. People need time to catch up to what you have to offer. Most bees are still flying around trying to make sense of where they are and where to land.

William King- superb comment and its validity still applies today. Those who listen and interact develop the skills of generating ideas. It is not a duty; it is a passion. I wwant to be open and say my expectations on this buzz fell badly. I expected more engagements. As I am writing this response the number of views has exceeded one thousand, but number of comments is - better not to mention it. Reading is the Amen and the duty finishes. But this life and we shouldn't expect too much. Thank you not only for writing a great comment, but also for giving me a rare opportunity to breathe out what is in my chest.

Yes, spot on you are Anees Zaidi with the tentacles idea. Recent research has shown that the arms of the octopus have their own brains and they control the movement of their arms locally. We need brainy ideas to explore them from many directions. When two ideas ( opposite ideas, male and female ideas) mate we may then have a new idea forming and a starting point for further progress. The best theory is an applied theory and I wrote this buzz aiming for or hoping for more ideas just as you are doing my dear friend. I wonder if e go back and find examples of how successful ideas extended their arms then we may see things better.

I dedicated this buzz to Javier C\u00e1mara Rica and beBee team for I know of their dedication beBee is to be a garden of flowery ideas

We need to build" Ideas arms" dear Anees Zaidi so that we may reach other ideas and metamorphose them. A single idea with a short arm shall get killed before it have a chance to grow. As we build mating social networks with long arms, we need to build mating social networks of ideas. Egoism is of no help as we need to take also other people's ideas and stretch their arms by adding to them. Fertility is selectivity and we need also to build many arms because very few shall metamorphose into great ones. I appreciate your confidence my friend, but me alone I am afraid I have only a short arm.

ideas generate with a fate to die, but with a holistic approach of continuity is striking- love this quote from your reply debasish majumder. We need to drop old thinking if we wish to generate new ideas. That could be one of the explanations that we have very few killer ideas or disruptive ideas. Appalling; yet appealing. I enjoyed your comment a lot.

Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee

Yes, dear Anees Zaidi. Ideas are living bodies and they need to reproduce to continue living. Out of thousands of ideas few live. I see great resemblance between the structures of sexual and dating human social networks and the arms of an octopus. Ideas need long arms to mate and reproduce. You are correct, because mating needs the right mood, time and space to happen. And only the luck few have the chance to do it. Ideas apparently have the long-tail distribution in which very few are privileged.
